About

In counselling, I work to help individuals to identify, strengthen and develop their coping skills by creating an empathic space to explore feelings.  I am passionate about offering strength-based counselling to help individuals work towards well-being and find ways to maintain connections with what is important to them. I draw on a number of modalities to individualize counselling for your needs and strengthen your existing coping skills and learn new ways to challenge difficult thoughts.
I have a breadth of experience supporting children and families around a range of issues such as anxiety, depression and grief and loss. I have EMDR training to help individuals process their experiences of trauma so that they can start to experience life without the carrying the pain of trauma with them day to day.
If you would like to talk to me more about whether I would be a good fit for your therapeutic needs feel free to contact me for a free 15 minute phone consult. I am here to support you in developing your strengths, coping strategies and to offer you a safe place to help you focus on the right way forward for you.
